RANDOLPH, Utah (AP) -- The Bureau of Land Management plans a prescribed burn northeast of the town of Randolph.

Federal officials plan to ignite the fire sometime Wednesday and allow it to burn about 34 acres.

The burn is intended to eliminate some of the conifers growing in the area so that stands of aspen trees can expand. The work is part of the Otter Creek Aspen Regeneration Project.

The burn is expected to last one day. The area will be monitored for two days after it's out.
